    You mean the naked girl? Obviously, that couldn't have been Soupy. He had one too many moving parts to be able to pull that one off. LOL.

    EDIT: 3 too many moving parts, if you count both balls.

    Here is a better article about the passing of Soupy:

    Here is my favorite part from the article:

    President Obama was joined in the Rose Garden by John McCain, Sarah Palin, Hilary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi. All of them mourned the loss of the man who everyone loved, and all of them expressed a sense of regret that they had never had Soupy hit them in the face with a pie to teach them humility.

    The nation has heartily agreed with both sentiments.
    LMAO.

    OK, but there was also a naked lady he occasionally used (not on TV, of course). That wasn't him. LOL.

    From Wiki
    Topless dancer pranks
    The show's set included a door in the background. During the show, Sales would answer a knock at the door and interact with an actor seen only as an arm. Occasionally, the person at the door was a celebrity, such as Burt Lancaster, Fess Parker or Alice Cooper. Once, while the show was being broadcast live from Detroit, Sales' studio crew pulled a prank on him: when he opened the door, he saw a topless dancer partially covered with a balloon. Some reports say the gag was furthered by the crew switching the studio monitors so that Soupy would think the stripper image was going out over the air. During his years in Los Angeles, as Sales was ending the show, he also opened the door and saw a topless dancer gyrating with a balloon
